Solarized - Gedit

Solarized Colour Theme ported to GEdit

Colour Theme by Ethan Schoonover

GEdit Theme created by Craig Russell

Project Abandoned

I'm no longer maintaining this project as I haven't used GEdit as a code editor in several years.

I have received reports that there are some incompatibility issues with later versions of GEdit, your mileage using this may vary.
